Hi everyone

My wife sent me a Valentines day card and when I click on the link, it says I need a plugin to play audio/midi. I then click ok and it brings me to a Netscape plugin finder. I search for the type and it says no plugin found. I think this is music for the card she sent me. Anyone have any ideas how I get RedHat Linux 8.0 to play the music with the card? It plays normal sound. I have a sound that plays on startup and it sounds fine. Thanks for the help.

Jim Macdonald.

what is the file type?

what is the required plugin name?

you may need "plugger" which is a plugin for linux browsers which adds support for loads of things including midi/audio

plugger can be found here

hope this helps

Hi salparadise.

To try to answer your questions.

1. Unknown. It is one of those cards with music attached to it.

2. Unknown. All it says for the plugin is audio/midi. And when I go to the netscape plug-in page, and search under midi and Linux, nothing comes up.

3. Plugger is installed and running on my system.

Thanks for the help. I am still stumped as to what to do. I installed a midi player, or tried (it didn't install) and still nothing. Thanks again
